17th April 2017: Batzorig Vaanchig – Morin Khuur

Batzorig Vaanchig – Morin Khuur
Language – Mongolian 
Translation – The Beautiful Steppe

There is so much that is truly awesome about this song. From what I can gather, it seems to be a song filled with pride about being Mongolian, and what a great country it is. The throat singing is fantastic, and I really want to learn more about the history of how that came about as a song form because it is fascinating. The fact that this man is sat on the top of a mountain, with the country, *his* country, stretching out behind him, just adds to the whole event. And the lady watching him…I wonder who she is?
